A decision not to pit for fresh tires almost cost Jeff Gordon in the final laps of the AAA 400. On a lap-373 caution nearly every driver behind him pitted for tires, and the older rubber caused him to lose three spots during the final run.
When the points were tallied, Gordon was only two markers ahead of the cutoff, which meant that he could not afford to lose much more ground. Poor decisions and bad restarts have cost this team all year and it appears they are not improving in this regard. Oct 5 - 1:47 PM

Jeff Gordon had a seesaw race in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but he ended the afternoon with a solid seventh-place finish. He climbed to 10th in the standings and gave his team a little cushion of 12 points over the round two cutoff entering Dover International Speedway.

Gordon simply needs a solid top-10 run next week at Dover and that is a track he has dominated in the past. He enters next weekend as the defending winner of the AAA 400 and he backed that up with a 10th in this May’s FedEx 400.

On Sunday when Jeff Gordon takes the green flag, he will break a tie with former Hendrick Motorsports teammate Ricky Rudd and set the record for most consecutive starts in NASCAR history with 789.

Gordon currently holds the longest consecutive starts streak from the beginning of a career – he has never missed a race since his Nov. 15, 1992, debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Jeff Gordon posted the third fastest lap in Chicagoland Speedway’s second practice session with a speed of 181.830 mph. This is reinforced by his speed on Friday, which was good enough to allow him to line up 10th on the grid for the 400.

The entire Hendrick Motorsports organization seems just a little sharper now that the Chase has begun and that will allow them to clear the first round of the playoffs. Gamble on Gordon at Chicagoland, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and Dover International Speedway, but then evaluate him again when the Contender round begins.

On Sunday when Jeff Gordon (No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS) takes the green flag at Chicagoland Speedway, he will tie former Hendrick Motorsports teammate Ricky Rudd for most consecutive starts in NASCAR history with 788.

Gordon currently holds the longest consecutive starts streak from the beginning of a career – he has never missed a race since his Nov. 15, 1992, debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gordon is also only 169 laps shy of 25,000 career laps led.-Hendrick Motorsports

Jeff Gordon finished in the top 10 for the first time in the last five races of 2015 when he crossed under the checkers seventh in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway.

That is a step in the right direction, but Gordon is going to need to string top-10s together if he wants to advance beyond the Challenger round. The driver is strong enough to do that in his last full season of Cup competition, but the team needs to work out some bugs soon.

Jeff Gordon was too aggressive on his first lap during the second round of qualification for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway and lines up 23rd Saturday night.

This is Gordon’s third-worst start in a 46-race career at Richmond. He also started 22nd twice and the good news is that he has finished 12th or better in all of those events with a 23rd-place advancement in spring 2014. That evening he finished second after starting 25th.

As Jeff Gordon races on tracks for the last time in his career, he inevitably becomes part of the story line. He will roll off the grid fifth for his final Cheez-it 355 at the Glen and was strong enough to contend for the pole.

Road racing takes a specialized set of skills, which Gordon has in abundance. He has won more races on this track type than anyone in the history of NASCAR and should be able to contend for another win. Calling one’s shot in this sport is difficult, but a solid top-five would make him a great value.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the final practice for the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen. His top speed was 127.333 mph, which was set early in the session.

Speed has not been the issue with Gordon in recent years, however. His last six attempts on this track have been marred by accidents, spins, and electrical problems—giving him only one top-10 in that span of time.

Jeff Gordon was running just outside the top 10 with one lap remaining in the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway, but as drivers ran out of gas in front of him, he advanced to third at the checkers.

Gordon was one of the last drivers to pit during the last fuel stop. He was not overly strong most of the afternoon, but played the cards that were dealt him and that ultimately paid off for fantasy players.

Jeff Gordon has struggled throughout the weekend at Pocono Raceway. He posted only the 21st-fastest time (173.842 mph) in Saturday mornings session for the Windows 10 400 and was 15th (172.891) on the final practice speed chart with 15 minutes remaining.

On the heels of a disappointing Brickyard 400 performance at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Gordon drastically needs something to turn around for the team. It appears he will have to wait at least one more week, however, and should be left in the Pocono garage.
Aug 1 - 12:10 PM

For the first time since April, Jeff Gordon earned three consecutive top-10s at Daytona International Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He finished ninth in the 5-Hour Energy 301.

As good as this is, Gordon is heading in the wrong direction at the moment. He finished sixth, seventh, and ninth in the past three races respectively and needs to turn his fortune around at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to be a good value.

While Clint Bowyer was attempting to leave the garage, he ran into the back of Jeff Gordon’s car. Significant damage was sustained by the No. 24 and it will probably cause him to miss the remainder of the morning session. Bowyer should be able to return to the track.

Gordon struggled in qualification and will start only 23rd on Sunday; Bowyer was slightly better and lines up 18th. Any practice that Gordon gets in will be meaningless as the car will have to undergo changes overnight. Gordon was 20th on the practice chart with Bowyer sitting 14th. Gordon is not recommended.

Jeff Gordon failed in his final bid to win a race at Kentucky Speedway—the only Cup track on which he has competed without a victory.

Gordon ran well and spent 70 percent of the race in the top 10, but he was part of the lead battle only briefly in the opening laps and never led. Time is dwindling for him to win during the regular season, but he currently 10th in the points’ standings and is not in much jeopardy of failing to make the Chase.

Kentucky Speedway is the only track visited by NASCAR on which Jeff Gordon has not yet won, which means a victory there must be on his bucket list for this week before he retires at the end of the 2015 season.

Gordon’s best finish at Kentucky was a fifth back in 2015. The good news is that he has never really struggled on this track with top-10s in all four starts. Winning is elusive, but Gordon’s focus on the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts should make him a solid value.
